Rednecks always have cousins around
A fight between bikers and rednecks nearly turned deadly on a back-road in Pawnee County, Oklahoma. After a group of 10 OSU students on motorcycles were allegedly cut off by a large pick-up truck, the lead rider sped up to jaw at the driver about what he’d done wrong. He wasn’t counting on the driver being ready to throw hands or the weapons-toting reinforcements who quickly appeared.
The pickup driver gets out of the car to argue with the lead rider while a shotgun-wielding man in overalls keeps his gun trained on the men from the side of the road. When the older truck driver, shoves the 19-year-old motorcyclist to the ground and begins punching him repeatedly, the shotgun-toter hops out of his car and yells at the nine other riders to keep their distance. He threatens to shoot them repeatedly and threatens the nearest one with a bashing from the butt of his gun.
Meanwhile, an overweight man who was driving down the road in the other direction hops out of his truck, identifies himself as a member of the Hells Angels, shows off a large stomach tattoo and pulls a knife on the young bikers. According to the story told by the bikers, he held the knife underneath one of their chins and threatened to kill them.
He can be heard on the video shouting “I’ll cut your f*cking throat” from off-camera and at one point he tries to wrestle the shotgun away from the overalls wearer, claiming that he’ll “blow [the bikers] faces off.”
While their friend is being beaten, the Hell’s Angel steals one of their cameras and refuses to give it back. Later in the video, after almost all of the involved parties have cleared out, the man claims that it’s “the price they pay for doing wrong.” But before that moment happens, another fight breaks out between the shotgun owner and a hi-vis biker who tried to reach and grab his camera.
The Hell’s Angel tells the other bikers that he’ll pray for them before he peels out with a stolen camera. That move may have cost him, as the local police arrested him shortly after the bikers turned the video over.
According to OSU’s student newspaper the O’Colly, the knife-wielding camera-snatcher is a 60-year-old named Paul Wisely. He was booked on charges of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy.
The man who was beaten ― who gave his name as Daniel to the student newspaper ― said that he laid on the ground and took a beating hoping that the others wouldn’t get hurt.

“I did what I thought was the best thing for the scenario,” Daniel said in the interview. “Throw an all-out fistfight brawl into the mess, and if one of them would have saw me going after the other one … then there’s a possibility of, one, me getting shot or me getting jumped by the other ones or getting stabbed.
“Whenever my guys would try to come in, with the shotgun and knife there, best case scenario I saw was ‘I’m not gonna get messed up too much. At least take this and let everything die down and stop, then maybe they’ll leave and leave my guys alone.’”
